It's no secret that legacy systems represent a recurring challenge for companies , regardless of size or industry.

These are old systems that remain in operation in organizations and that generally use obsolete databases. Many of these systems are decades old and, despite being optimized from time to time to accommodate memory, disk and network usage with local servers, they still use not very modern languages.

With this, the need to modernize the databases of organizations arises, however, just recreating the solutions with cloud computing technology can be very costly and time-consuming. Therefore, migrating to the cloud efficiently can represent numerous advantages for companies.

Knowing the benefits of migrating legacy systems to the cloud

Maintaining legacy systems can cause many headaches for organizations, as IT teams have to deal with outdated software , poor scalability and lack of recurring support. 

In this sense, migrating to the cloud provides significant advantages for the business , such as:

  • Increased data security and protection;
  • Availability of access anywhere, with any device;
  • Increased performance;
  • automatic backups;
  • Decreased use of obsolete equipment that no longer has software and hardware support;
  • Access permission without the need for physical presence at the workplace.

The challenges involving legacy systems

When dealing with this type of migration to the cloud, it is important to pay attention to some precautions .

It is imperative that the migration process is well carried out so that data and documents are not lost. 

As the transfer of information does not occur instantly, it is possible to consider a coexistence of databases, and the same occurs with servers and specific applications. 

In addition, legacy systems do not handle problems such as latency well, which did not exist on local networks, and use databases differently than cloud-native solutions.
